The HORADAM® AQUARELL assortment
110 colours represent the HORADAM® AQUARELL range. 69 colours are formulated with one pigment only, the ideal concept for professional painting and for colour mixing. Many of the new artists’ pigments have been researched and tested to comply with the highest quality standard regarding stability, fineness, resolubility and lightfastness. To achieve the outstanding characteristics, like reusable paint when dried on a palette and the high control of paint flow even on soft water-colour papers we only use the best raw materials. In its coloristic appearance the total assortment is particularly harmonious, balanced and complete.
No compromise in quality –
Highest standards of artists’ pigments allow highest light fastness
The lightfastness is an objective characteristic, which depends not only on the pigment itself, but also on the complete formula. Therefore Schmincke does not only use the lightfastness given by the pigment itself but makes tests of the complete formula of each shade in the fast Xenontest and / or on the roof of the Schmincke factory for a prolonged period.
To be able to test properly and classify colours strictly according to our 5-star-system attached to the “woolscale”, such intensive testing is absolutely vital.
It is self-understood that no water-colour painting should be exposed to direct sunlight for a longer time due to the usually fine and thin and thereby light sensitive colour application.
